A message from the superintendent

Dear New Haven Families,

The School Choice Enrollment Guide is designed to provide our families with needed information and tools to explore school options for children. Please take the time to peruse and learn about our schools. New Haven Public Schools has a diverse number of high-quality schools with positive environments, dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators. Our schools range from traditional neighborhood, magnets, and charter, each with their own unique themes and programming.

As you make your choices, please consider the interests of your children, special talent, variety of academic programs, school operational hours, distance from home, time on bus routes, and other extracurricular offerings. Also, please ensure that you join us at our School Expo, Open Houses, and Information Sessions. Staff will be available to guide and explain the varied programs in their schools.

It is very important that you engage in the process to help select what is in the best interest of your children. Let us work collaboratively to help our students explore varied environments that will help prepare them for now and the future.

Your continued partnership is anticipated.
